Chess prodigy

Chess prodigies are children who play so good chess, that they are able to beat Masters and Grandmasters, often at a very young age. Some of them have become World Champions, others failed to make progress.

The chess world always looks with big expectations to these prodigies. Chess is one of the few sports where children can compete with adults.

The has been a tendency for chess players to gain the Grandmaster title earlier and earlier in their lives. One possible reason for this is that the number of grandmasters on the whole has increased.
